>“T-34s are exactly the right tanks for us,” I replied. “They are crude, simple, and reliable. They always start and they always run. If they do break, any machine shop can fix ’em. We don’t want tanks to fight other tanks. That’s what anti-tank weapons are for. The best way to stop an M-1 is with a mine that blows a tread off. We want tanks for real armored warfare, which means to get deep in the enemy’s rear and overrun his soft stuff, his artillery and logistics trains and headquarters, so his whole force panics and comes apart.”
>“Black people have been the only warriors in history. White men can’t fight. It’s because their noses are too small. Courage comes from the nose, not the heart, as the African spiritual healers you call witch doctors have long understood. That’s why black people eat their snot. What do you white folk do with your snot? You wrap it up in a little white surrender flag and put it in your pocket. So you don’t have no courage.”
>Anyway, it was clear that Gunny Matthews, the director of the Council Of Responsible Negroes, or CORN, had a tough row to hoe.

As usual this thread is for the discussion and pics of tracked and wheeled AFVs of all kinds from MBTs to supertanks to self propelled AA guns. Please keep it civil and cite sources for statistics.
The Type 89 IFV exemplifies yet another product of the Japanese defense industry’s relative conservatism. With the advent of the 1980s, the JGSDF sought a capable IFV option in accordance with prevailing designs in the west. To this end, in 1980, a JPY 600 million request was tendered for the commissioning of four new vehicle prototypes. These prototypes were completed by 1984, and accepted into service in 1989, receiving its designation as the “Type 89”. Low rate production commenced under Mitsubishi, but Komatsu also served as a subcontractor. Although 300 vehicles had been demanded at the onset, by 1999, the slow pace of production and some budgetary issues led to only some 58 vehicles being completed. Nevertheless, the continuation of production has led to 120 or so IFVs in service as of 2014. The IFV itself, like a lot of other JGDSF equipment, is fairly conventional. The hull consists of an all welded steel construction with a front left mounted engine on a torsion bar suspension. It possesses seven dismounts via two back doors and three crew positions, with firing ports and periscopes respectively. Main armament consists of an Oerlikon Contraves 35 mm KDE cannon offering a cyclic rate of fire of 200 rpm, sourced either from Switzerland or license produced. A Jyu-MAT wire guided missile sits on both sides of the turret, and the turret also has a coaxial 7.62 mm Type 74 machinegun to the dual feed cannon. The Type 89 boasts no amphibious capacity, however, but does have an NBC system, laser warning system and night vision equipment.
